Ever experienced an urge where you want to eat something sweet, it may be absolutely anything??
Its like you really want something, and until you have it you feel restless?? (let’s just hope its not only me )
I did Try to avoid it as much as possible (trying to maintain my diet), but finally surrendering to my cravings, went out to have a cheese cake. If you had one you would know how utterly delicious it is. Every bite was a bliss.
While enjoying the master piece of the chef, I thought about making it my self. I mean why not??? If the chef can bake it to perfection even I could give it a try, right?
With this one goal in mind I set out to the other side of my town (we don’t get cream cheese where I live)which is a 50 mins drive, just to get all the ingredients needed.
Once and for all, they were in place I baked my base. According to the video tutorial, it was supposed to come out soft and well baked but in reality mine came out hard as a rock and was far away from well baked!!
Had to scrap it, as no human could possibly consume it. Baked a second one which surprisingly turned out to be better than before…. relief !
Now it was time to make the batter and pour it over the base. Here everything turned out good, the batter tasted great, the setting was done right and was ready to be baked. So that’s exactly what I did. Set the timer to 20 mins, temperature to 180 degrees, and pressed start.
But as soon as it started, our electricity cut off!! Imagine my distress…
I had no other choice than to wait…
An hour passed,
another one passed.
But it never returned.
It was high time I waited the batter had to be baked soon, as it already started thinning. So, I decided to bake it the traditional way :on stove.
While it was on the stove, getting ready to be eaten, I was day dreaming about how delicious it will be, and how satisfying the feeling will be.
A Ting from the oven brought me back to reality: i.e. I could finally check my handy work….
With a alot of excitement, I opened the oven and was expecting to see a fine product in all it’s majestic glory!
And you could guess….It was a total disaster !!
I expected to have a baked cheese cake but in reality, I baked a cheeses sponge cake!!
I really have no idea where I went wrong, even after following all the instructions.
It was A total cooking disaster!!!
Well not totally, the spong cake did taste good, quite similar like a baked cheese cake just not the proper texture.
I do plan on giving it another try (let’s hope this time it’s as expected.)
You ever had a cooking disaster? Let me know 😉
